PostPosted: Tue Apr 22, 2003 9:49 am   Post subject: Inkey in turing

In QBasic, there is a command that will wait until a key is pressed.

code:

DO
         'expressions
LOOP WHILE inkey$=""


or

code:

DO
       'expressions
        SLEEP
LOOP UNTIL 'statement is true'



Is there a similar command in Turing that will wait until the key is pressed?[/code]

yeah use getch, with a loop... we'll use 'h' as the certian key your waiting for
code:
var anykey:string(1) %for getch the string has to be one character
loop
getch(anykey)
exit when anykey = "h"
put "Thats not the right key, you must press 'h'"
end loop


oh, and check out the tutorials section before you post help, it may clear up a lot of your problems

code:
var ch:char
loop
exit when getchar = "x"
end loop

"x" can be changed to character u want... Smile

you for got to put getch inside the loop Confused And after that it would be exactly what Blade already said.
